The Utopia of Main Beach is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by The Beach Bum with a fair hand, and renowned for its state-planned economy, smutty television, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.141 billion Main Beachians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Main Beach. The average income tax rate is 83.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Main Beachian economy, worth 857 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 120,112 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation has opened its arms to an influx of refugees, mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest-growing field, orphanages are closing their doors as the government forces parents to actually raise their children, and the new foreign policy is "why bother invading neighbours when they can be bought wholesale?". Crime is totally unknown. Main Beach's national animal is the dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Paganism.

Main Beach is ranked 16,494th in the world and 3rd in Santa Cruz for Highest Poor Incomes, with 87,378.93 Standard Monetary Units.
